In addition to App of the week, every Thursday Apple chooses a Movie of the week, whose purchase is only $ 3. The title selected this time was The book of Eli, with Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman.
Check out his trailer:
Here's what Apple says about the movie:
The exploration of themes that show humanity surviving after the apocalypse remains recurrent in cinema, and it is no different with The Book of Eli. Right away, you can see a different world, devastated and gray, thanks to the direction of photography and special effects. Eli (Denzel Washington) has been on the road for 30 years, with a mission to take a mysterious book to the West. His saga, however, is threatened by a tyrant (Gary Oldman) in a citadel, who will do everything possible and impossible to obtain the enigmatic publication. Expect a film of action with fights executed in sequential shots, without interference from cuts. In the feature, not much is explained in relation to the past or the unfolding of the facts of the present. Many deductions and reflections are up to the viewer, and that is exactly what makes the film a work that deserves all the attention.
As usual, our reader Renato Alan Promenzio (@tripalavra), who is a cardholder, was also willing to send us a personalized comment about the film:
THE Movie of the week one more of those focused on a post-apocalypse world. Not that this is bad, but it also doesn't classify it with a film. The Hughes brothers, who had been in the beginning since the good Do Inferno (2001), with Johnny Deep, tried to marry hunger, fear, despair and faith in this production. She did not do very well at the box office, but in my opinion it is good and makes the most of the protagonists. On the other hand, it skips a lot and leaves big gaps until the end is revealed. Since the first Mad Max, I consider it one of the best films in the genre; I believe that American cinema has been trying to take advantage of the theme to, who knows, emplacar a new blockbuster.
